2014-15 Winter Season Roundup: Although most of the Alps got off to a patchy start last Christmas, Zermatt benefited from their usual early season big dumps. The snowfalls then continued regularly. What was unusual is that we had a higher than average total snowfall above 2,500m altitude, with 700cm; whereas at 2,000m the snowfall totalled 411cm. Nonetheless, given the extensive snowmaking, it was not at all noticeable unless you ventured off-piste low down.  If you scroll through the blog entries below, you will see that all in all it was an excellent (if not epic) season. We did far more off-piste skiing – between 3,800m and 2,500m – than on-piste, which is probably the best measure of a season.
